    Second shot - Whatever you use for singles.

    First shot, whatever is 0.010" bigger than your singles choke.

    Light Mod and Mod .15 and .20 gets good smoke on the second bird if I do my part. light 7.5 and 3dr 7.5 second or light 7.5 each seem to work. Find what works for you. Have fun doubles are great.

    Find out what distance you break the targets at. Then you will know what chokes you need. HMB

    Have a good doubles shooter watch you shoot your practice doubles. By watching you shoot them,he will be able to advise you what combination to try. Without seeing you shoot,its impossible to know what might work for you!

    Duffer load:

    1st shot - Full - 7/8's with 8.5 or 9 shot

    2nd shot - IM with 1-1/8 with 7.5 shot

    Seems to work great - any misses are me only.
